The Ultimate Narcissist
In a PolitickerPA cartoon, the mainstream media turn a blind eye to John Edwards' affair with Rielle Hunter. Despite this, the story is all over the place. Does this mean "an end to the era in which the mainstream media controlled the agenda for national political journalism?"
Blogs did not break this story. It was The National Enquirer.
How about locally? Aren't politicians entitled to a zone of privacy concerning their personal life? Should we report affairs that often have no relevance to someone's fitness for office?
